What Are The Different Types Of Attic Insulation Installation?
Blanket Batts/Rolls Insulation
The most common type of attic insulation is blanket batts or roll insulation. This type of insulation consists of flexible fibers, usually made from fiberglass or mineral wool, and is available in pre-cut widths and lengths for easy installation.
The benefit of blanket batts/rolls insulation is that it’s relatively inexpensive and easy to install—you simply lay it between the joists in your attic. However, because this type of insulation isn’t very effective at blocking air infiltration, it may not provide enough protection from drafts.
Closed Cell Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam insulation is a good option if you’re looking for maximum protection from air infiltration. It’s applied as a liquid that expands into foam once applied, filling all cracks and crevices in your attic space.
The benefit of spray foam insulation is its superior ability to block air infiltration; however, it’s also more expensive than other types of attic insulation and requires professional installation.
Loose-Fill Insulation (Blown In Insulation)
Blown-in insulation (also referred to as loose fill or blown fiber) is a type of fiber insulation material that’s installed by blowing the fibers into wall cavities, attics, and other areas where increased thermal protection is needed.
Once they’re blown in through a large hose connected to an insulation machine on the outside of your home—they expand up to 10 times their original volume—forming a dense blanket that resists heat loss in winter and helps keep cool air inside during summer months. Blown-in insulation can also help reduce soundproofing between different rooms of your house.
Benefits Of Installing Attic Insulation

Spray foam insulation is an efficient method of insulating a home or building. It consists of two types of materials: open-cell foam and closed-cell foam. The foam works by trapping air in the small pockets which causes it to expand, creating an effective barrier that helps keep heat in and out of your home. It also adds strength to walls, ceilings, and roofs as it bonds firmly with them.
Attic insulation is an essential part of keeping your home warm and energy-efficient. By having the proper amount of insulation installed, you can dramatically reduce the amount of energy it takes to keep your home at a comfortable temperature.

An attic audit typically includes a visual inspection of the insulation, ductwork, and other areas that may be causing loss of heated or cool air.
The auditor will also measure temperatures and inspect places like door frames and windows to identify any air leaks that can cause drafts or higher utility costs. Afterward, they will provide recommendations on how to best address your specific issues to improve your home’s overall energy efficiency.
